Currently he is creating a natural ‘sustainable community space and spiritual center’ at Lotus Bend Sanctuary in south Austin, Texas.

Today, Russell is focused on creating tools and resources to help reintegrate the ancient wisdoms with modern science and reviving the path to holistic spiritual living. He is currently working with transpersonal healing therapies within both the standard scientific and non-standard meta-science realms, using astro-psychology, entheogenic guidance, and sound-light healing techniques to explore consciousness, at ritesofthesun.com. His ground-breaking works in cosmological mechanics, and astrological & mathematical research, Celestia Mathematica, The Fibonacci Zodiac & The Secrets of Starlight, are currently being taught by other astrological schools as a foundational theory of the governing structure behind astrological knowledge.
